Writing a walking tour book is tough. You don't want to bog the reader/walker down with so much text that they don't have the chance to look up and enjoy the view (and there are a lot of them). Adah Bakalinsky hits it just right.
A word of warning: The reason the stairs are there is because of the hills. Like, big hills. Start with an easy walk. Some of these are a real workout. I made the mistake of starting with Walk 17 (the pic on the cover) and was sore for two days. On the other hand, Walk 17 is so cool I've done it twice.
If you are interested in the physical and architectual bueaty of the city, and you want to see it close up and get a workout at the same time, you gotta buy this book!
Maps give good details with step by step turns, etc,
